baltimore but a more likely scenario will it be sunday's games. >> mobile 5 is out on the highways where there is a warning all the way from southern california. armageddon to, the sequel to last summer shutdown of the 405 freeway in l.a.. the second chapter is set for this weekend starting friday night at 10:00. caltrans says they need about 185,000 cars off the roads to avoid total gridlock down there. you're looking at live pictures from interstate 280 and as you can see, the signs are already warning you not to plan on going anywhere near the 405. >> what if you do it and nobody shows up? >> there is no reason to leave the bay area this weekend.
you can stay a couple hundred miles away and enjoy some pretty gorgeous weather. first of all i will show you the beautiful view from dublin and we have many some skies inland. as the tanker goes by under the bay bridge, i will show you some temperatures still chilly in san francisco. oakland 67. on this state just three years ago, we hit the triple digits in livermore, a record high of 103 degrees. we will get warm this weekend once again. clouds are still hugging the coast line making it into the bay this morning and we will see that once again this morning but the sunshine will come out because the first that of the two-step process will start tomorrow. i pressure is moving just over
the top of us limiting the onshore flow which means a thinner marine layer and also temperature's increasing by a few degrees. the big warmup comes over the weekend and now it will last three days. high pressure to the north teaming up with low pressure to the south, the offshore wind will develop on saturday and stick around for three days and it will get very warm around here, likely the warmest weekend we have had since late july. earlier sunshine tomorrow and friday. highs tomorrow, san jose 80 degrees and 73 in oakland. cupertino 79. upper seventies for petaluma, of mill valley 72. look at the heat that is
coming. after friday's, '90s inland. close to 100 on saturday sunday and monday and also highs in the upper seventies to low 80s near the bay. with the temperature's increasing the fire danger will also increase and for more on that we turn to roberta gonzales from livermore >> i'm walking gingerly in the foothills because it is still rattlesnake season but i wanted to come out here so you could take a look at this, 5,000 a. surround the lake and what you see? nothing but golden hills. if you take a closer look, it is extremely dry and these conditions are similar to conditions in 1992 when we had the great oakland fire. coming up at 6:00 we will be speaking with a fire captain right here who will be telling us the combination of dry conditions and high temperatures, what it means for
us and what we need to know to prevent fires. that is all coming up tonight at 6:00. >> we will not see the strong gusty wind but as the temperature goes up the fire danger goes up as well >> a lot of people are trying to save money. what is the cheapest and which to make? julie watts has the results of a sandwich survey so you can stretch for paycheck. >> whether it is a brown bag or an ecologically friendly lunch box, bringing food from home has its benefits. >> healthier food is better tasting >> the biggest benefit is the savings. leonard says that while many prices for individual ingredients have risen over the past year, overall
>> you cannot be a homemade sandwich on price >> so we put it to the test, buying name-brand ingredients, assembling sandwiches then doing the math. first up, tuna fish with manas. with a few slices of tomato on whole wheat costs $1.21. next up, bacon lettuce and tomato and mayonnaise set us back $1.29. cheese and tomato on whole wheat cost us $1.36 and finally, a salad, and 90¢, in a butter and jelly on whole wheat was 61¢. the recipe for savings, the cost of all the ingredients were each sandwich was still cheaper than the same sandwich made by someone else. just the kind of midday meal that make sense. >> if you are interested we put all of the calculations on line.
>> we hear a lot about the childhood obesity and a democrat but now, a new problem. complaints that kids are not eating enough. what is behind the apparent paradox. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
>> the new school year has brought new school lunches and that has sparked some protests. some kids with the help of their teachers are biting the hands that feed them. >>
♪ ♪ >> kids are collapsing from hunger, stuffing their walkers with john food and woefully staring at their lunch trays. ♪ ♪ >> this video is stirring the pot over the new federal lunch guidelines saying there aren't just not enough food in calories and the kids are going hungry. so are bay area school kids also hungry? >> we have not had any complaints at all about not having enough food. >> she says the video is clever but misses the point >> what we're really trying to address that is the epidemic we have of childhood obesity. >> so how many calories are in a school lunch? last year the requirement was 825 and this year it is a range from 750-850. she says that is plenty of food for one meal and designed to
cover the needs of students active or not. which brings us back to the video which while it stars kids was shot and edited by adults from a small farm town in kansas >> this is a meal program for students so if they say they have concerns i would certainly look at that a different way and knowing he is an adult video with the involve students because i questioned the agenda >> a sedentary high-school student might only need 1,800 cals per day but for a competitive athlete, they could need up to 5,000 cals per day. the new guidelines require less sugar, less salt and less fat as well which takes some getting used to >> is not only the calories but what they're eating >> and how active are you. everybody is different and i think there is a lot of good behind the new guidelines >> caloric intake at different
times of the day as well. >> school lunches are part of the program but there are breakfasts at many schools and after-school snacks, so is a diverse program. ,,,,,,,,
